Long password not accepted during Wi-Fi setup.

I recently bought a Roku Express 4K / 4K+ | Model 3940 / 3941, setting it up was easy until I got to the part where they wanted the password to my internet server.  My router has a very long group of letters ands names and there wasn’t enough room on the line for the Roku set up to take it all.  As a result I have not been able to complete the set up.  I would appreciate any thoughts on this.  My router is a Netgear Wireless-N 300 Router.

Re: Long password not accepted during Wi-Fi setup.

How long is it?  I generally use Wi-Fi passwords of around 40 characters as a compromise between security and ease of entry on new devices.  I’ve had no problems with that length on Roku, and in my opinion, that’s plenty secure (overkill really) for a home setting.
